1) The big one. Many people have speculated about Okoto being on Spherus Magna in the future. But with the description of the G2 Mask of Time, which was definitely the single solitary thing in G2 that was actually intended to be a G1 connection, it's said that the mask is "older than the world of Okoto and the stars in its sky", and I doubt the top half of the Vahi existed throughout G1 and we just didn't know about it. Plus the Temple of Time was said to be a bridge to other worlds, so it's clear that G2 is meant to take place on/in a different world than G1. But one thing that everybody I've seen theorize on connections overlooks, that really makes this very easy, is the Golden-Skinned Being. He was clearly being set up for a major role in the contimuing story before it was cut short, and he had incredible power. In Sahmad's Tale, he creates a world far away from Spherus Magna full of beings like Annona, and then sends her to it. So we know he has the power to create distant planets, determine what's on them, and teleport people from Spherus Magna to them. Given the metaphysical descriptions of the formation of Okoto, and the fact that the Toa fell to Okoto from the stars, I think that's something to keep in mind.
2) The G2 Toa have no elemental powers; their power comes from their masks. In The Yesterday Quest, Kabura, who also was clearly being set up for a major role, had a launcher that could deactivate a Toa's elemental powers that was given to him by Velika, who was being groomed as the new main antagonist. Plus we know that there is a Kanohi mask for each element, but of the we've only seen the Avohkii, Kraahkan, and Garai. Maybe the Toa Nuva got their elemental powers deactivated and then get new masks corresponding to the Spherus Magna elements (for whatever reason) to compensate?
3) There was a big party of characters that Velika tried to kill in the Great Being fortress that escaped; of the group, the two most powerful were Artakha, bearer of the Mask of Creation, and Miserix, the last of the Makuta. These two could have some connection to G2's Ekimu and Makuta, though I'd stop short of saying they're the same characters.
4) Biggest longshot - Velika wears a powerless Komau, the Mask of Mind Control. Maybe he picked out that mask because he had some kind of Great Being trick up his sleeve to use that mask power to aid in his world domination schemes? And then you could connect that to G2's Mask of Control. Somehow.
What do you guys think of these ideas?
